Handmade Christmas

An almost finished candy cane ornament.
For the past 10 years, my family has exchanged handmaid gifts in an attempt to limit the amount of money we all spend. I has been a tough year for some, but we still wanted the excitement of opening gifts. In years past, I have knit hats, made photo books and ornaments. This year is a mix of all of the above.
I started this Moderne log Cabin blanket in 2007! This may be the oldest WIP ever.Untitled
My plan is to finish projects, that have been sitting on needles for years, in time for Christmas. I have an unfinished lap blanket for the inlaws, a pair of gloves for my SIL, a cowl for my sister and some pottery at my ceramics class that need to be glazed. I am going to be busy this month. Ack! I only have one month left!!! Yes, a month. In Laws Christmas will be on the 21st!

Will you be making handmaid gifts this year?

Happy Crafting!

  1. I think this is a great idea! I've knit gifts in the past, but lately I haven't had time. I miss it, though, because handmade gifts are so special!

    1. It is so hard to get them done sometimes. :)
